I’m trying to simulate optical bistability in a photonic crystal. The photonic crystal consists of a waveguide with a side couple nonlinear cavity. At this time, I simulated the structure for two different amplitudes (1.0e7 and 2.5e8) and, I got the expected behavior (a shift on the resonant wavelength, Fig1).
I’m following the optical bistability example, but when I analyze the results, I can’t see the bistability(Fig2). I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.
These are my simulation files.

Thanks a lot for your help.
